And no, no one should tell me Toni Payne has been blogging since the days of Uche Pedro (bellanaija), lol. Check out her new website first and tell me if that was her style of blogging before now and your answer would be No! Well Toni has started blogging, and it’s not even a joke, lol. A very good look at her twitter handle will prove it to you. She's so busy looking for news and tweets them as soon as she posts them on her website. Blogging? Oh well! Welcome to the club mama! Hope it pays someday! Check some of her blog-tweets below.

They also pressed forward to get a goal but the Eaglets were stronger in defence and they converted their play to possessive football. About the end of the game, a foul at the edge of the box was spotted by the Referee. Musa Muhammad filled with confidence converted the ball directly into the box to get a 3rd goal for Nigeria.
It's 4 titles for Nigeria on the Asian soil. Its another proud record. Alampasu desrves the Man of the match award. Nigeria has also set the record for higest goals scored by a team in the U-17 World Cup, scoring an all time high 26 goals. All hail the Eaglets. Manu Garba won this trophy as a player and as a coach. Time to be a Nigerian, PROUD ONE.
Nollywood actor, Jibola Dabo has joined the league of actors who are also politicians. The actor will be contesting for House of Reps in 2015. His campaign poster is already out. We wish him all the best.
Idris Elba is off the market. The fine actor who a lot of ladies are in love with is expecting another child, with his make-up artist girlfriend, Naiyana Garth. They started dating in March, but stepped out publicly not too long ago. And their next public outing was when Naiyana stepped out with him, flaunting her baby bump (in the second pic above). Big congrats to them.
Another Yoruba actress, just like Lola Alao has given another reason why single ladies should prefer married men. She also gave reasons why she got married to one, and why she initially lied to journalists that her husband was living abroad before now. Here is what she told Vanguard;
Why are many actresses getting married to married men?
I am married to a married man too. I have not told anyone this before. Other journalists I have met were fed the story that my husband is abroad when he has always been in the country.
Most single men out there are not matured enough to handle the fact that actresses are normal women. They believe we are harlots to be used and dumped. I believe they are too immature to handle the life around us. They are easily affected by things they read and hear about us, and also things they see on screen about us.
But married men are matured to handle all this. They listen to us instead of listening to gist about us. They seem to understand women better. Besides, they are more caring, gentler and wiser.

It was indeed a black Tuesday on the 5th of November, 2013 in Alaba International market when dare-devil armed robbers stormed the market and killed innocent people. A young lady who was conveying a large sum of money which belonged to her boss to the bank, with two mobile police officers was double crossed by armed robbers and shot several times. One of the police officers was also shot and the second one managed to escape with bullet injuries. As the robbers made to escape, they were interrupted, which made them shoot randomly killing innocent people.
This is not the first time the lady and the mobile police officers will be conveying such a large amount of money to the bank before the unfortunate incident took place on Tuesday. The importer which she worked for is said to be among the richest in Alaba market. The police had since moved the dead bodies to the mortuary. See some pictures below only if you have the mind. Viewer’s discretion is strictly advised.

We wish the couple all the best.

The allegation about your trip to the States is that you went to do gigolo ‘runs’, what is your take on it?
People don’t really know my story. I have heard different things about me. I have heard that I am a gigolo, gay that I have foolish attitude, that I am a snub.
Some people don’t know I had a very rough beginning, even though my parents were on the average. I moved to Lagos alone and I had a very rough time. I slept on the street sometimes. Continue below.
Over to you guys.

Recently stumbled upon a commercial on a new hair product & thought it'd be great to share. It's my early Christmas gift to you ladies. It's a costumed GLUELESS lace wig called Trayciee's Pieces made with hard net lace technology that just blends with my hair and without any glue. Somebody say amazing! What's even more amazing is that I can dye the hair without damaging my natural hair.
Thanks to Tracy Nwapa who partnered with Lo'lavita hair to save us with Trayciee's pieces. I can now wear hair extensions without leaving my hair out but still achieve that natural effect.
The Central Bank of Nigeria and the Bankers Committee yesterday sealed a biometric solution pact with a German Firm, Dermalog, for the development of a payment system that would be driven by fingerprints. The move, according to the CBN Governor, Mr. Lamido Sanusi, will help to revolutionise the country’s payment system.
For instance, unlike the current practice where different instruments are used as means of identification, bank customers will be identified through their fingerprints by 14th of February, 2014 when it would become operational. The cost of the project is above $50m and the banks are going to be sharing the cost of the project while customers wont be charged.
Yvonne with her sisters
The actress will start her reality show with her sisters in the first quarter of 2014. The show has been titled the First Ladies. Yvonne will also be having a separate talk show, Dining With Yvonne and it will be aired about the same time. She has started shooting the episodes (a picture below proves it). Michael Djaba, the ceo of IFactorylive, who the reality show would be on his platform has this to say;
As ailing actor, Kayode Odumosu, known as Pa Kasumu battle to survive his double ailments, some of his colleagues in the Association of Nigerian Theatre Arts Practitioners, ANTP, are allegedly at loggerheads over N600,000 donation made by an Ogun State based businessman.
We were reliably told that after a certain businessman from Ogun State donated a sum of N600,000 to save the ailing Nollywood actor via some of his colleagues in ANTP some weeks back, there have been an unending chaos among the colleagues.
At last the Governor has decided to speak. He spoke last night to some journalists that his wife has not been placed on house arrest by him or anyone. My wife has some health challenges, and I am not ready to expose her for people to ridicule, he said. His wife was also present with her senior brother and other family members of the Governor. Here is what they told Punch.
Governor Sullivan Chime of Enugu State on Tuesday night denied subjecting his wife, Mrs. Clara Chime, to house arrest and has vowed to protect her from being exposed to ridicule.
Chime made this denial in the presence of some journalists, his wife and her elder brother, Mr. Tony Igwe.
Also present were the governor’s siblings, Mrs. May Oji and Dr. Jide Chime, as well as Mrs. Chime’s neuro-psychiatric doctor, Dr. Aham Agumuo, among a few others.
Tiwa Savage’s fiancé Tee Billz has told Encomium magazine that their wedding slated for 23rd of this month is not meant for everyone. According to him both families are large and they also have quite a number of friends too so the venue might not house everyone, so it’s a strictly by invitation party. Here is what he told the magazine;
We are making our wedding as low key as possible, not everyone is invited. Our families are large including our friends and the venue won’t house everybody so we are printing limited invitation cards.
While receiving the car, the president of Project27 Africa said “We can’t express our deepest appreciation enough to AY for his thoughtful generosity. With his donation, AY has demonstrated a deep commitment to the happiness of Kids in Rural Africa the category of children Project27 Africa caters for. And there’s just no way to fully express our gratitude. We only hope going all out to more rural areas and making much more rural Kids very happy would help us communicate our very big thanks to him. Good gesture! More pictures after the cut.
The police in Ogun have arrested a 30-year-old panel beater, Wasiu Yusuf, for allegedly stabbing his friend, Adeolu Olatoye, to death in Abeokuta.
Another suspect in the alleged killing of the 32-year-old graphic artist, Mukaila Popoola, is currently on the run. The suspect’s wife, 26-year-old Busayo, is also in detention at the Adatan Police Station.
The victim, the suspect and his alleged accomplice lived in the same premises before the incident.
I know some people will not like this write up. But I am sure they can only assimilate what their heads can process. So, "what cares me?"
Weeks back, I was talking with General Gowon, he had a bone to pick with me, IRO how some comedians are taking the comedy Licence too far. He had just hit a sore part in the conversation, when a call came in, I peeked, XYZ Fan Lagos, so I silenced it. General Gowon said, go ahead, you can take your call. I said, I will call the person back. And I heard him out. I had to.

here on the 1st of August, 2013 that Wande Coal has quietly left Mavin Records. This evening Don Jazzy called him out on twitter after Wande released his new single Baby Face' which Don Jazzy claims he stole from him. Wande denied stealing the song and even asked Don Jazzy why he had to call him out on twitter when he could easily reach him on phone or through his email. Don Jazzy must be pissed. Wande even admitted he quietly left Mavin like i reported here, lol.
The 4'4 JD broke a bottle and stabbed the 6'1 bouncer immediately. The bouncer who was already bleeding got hold of some bottles and started flinging it around in the club apparently when JD escaped. Some properties where damaged and some fun seekers also got injured in the process. One of them, Mrs Anderson who goes by the name, @Isnitched4Oreos on twitter and has a very interesting twitter page which most of you will love tweeted at Davido the following morning, about how she's already working so hard to sue him. Oma ga o.

Nollywood actress Taiwo Aromokun who recently delivered a set of twins in London, UK might just be in a serious financial trouble. The actress got into this mess when she married an alleged Londoner last year but later found out the man lied to her. Apparently the man doesn’t have a legal stay in the United Kingdom, so he can’t stay in London.
Following her baby delivery in London, Taiwo Aromokun has battled many challenges including her inability to pay her 3 bedroom apartment rent in Lagos. According to industry sources, the Egba-born actress is presently stranded in London with financial problem which didn’t permit her to return back to Nigeria with her twins.
But guess what... though the event must have come and gone, the reverb of this fantastic concert is one that will be felt for a long time to come. From the ambience of the concerts area, the sterling performances, the lightning effect, the sound, the entire feel was absolutely world class; and in a way only Guinness could.
